What is Super Nintendo World?
According to the official Universal Studios Japan website, the much-anticipated Super Nintendo World has a planned opening date of March 18, 2021!
Super Nintendo World allows you to experience the game world of Nintendo in a life-size fashion. It reproduces the world of Nintendo's popular characters and games. It has the unique feature that users can enjoy participating in competitions with one another in the attractions enabling everyone to enjoy them together.
Players can actually enter and play in the world of Super Mario within the area. See how well you can do in Mario Kart and also venture forth into the Peach Castle and Bowser Castle that are well-known in the world of Mario.

Super Nintendo World: A new age theme park that interacts with your smartphone!
The Power Up Band introduced at this time has been a hot topic of conversation. Using the latest technology, reality and the world of games become fused as one. The wristwatch-type wristband Power Up Band can be purchased in an area. After downloading the original app onto your smartphone, you can interactively gain coins and stamps, keep records, such as your score of captures, and see your achievements and ranking.
As you venture forth in the area, by actually hitting the Hatena Blocks set up here and there, you will earn the coins like Mario does in the game. By achieving the conditions set in the app, you can get Mario character stamps, and also collect coins according to the mark. You can actually experience the game world while competing with friends and other participants in real time because participant rankings are shown by the number of coins they gain.
The Super Nintendo World adventure begins when Bowser Jr. steals a golden mushroom and locks it. In the Key Challenge, if you manage to collect three keys you defeat Bowser Jr. and regain the golden mushroom.
Then, cooperating with other participants, you can go up against other enemy characters in the Boss Battle.
Super Nintendo World is a theme park where you can experience a virtual game world, one in which you actually use your body, jumping and hitting blocks to collect coins and other items, making this an interactive theme park like no other and the first of its kind in the world.
